In California, a single person making $61,320 a year (The median household income in California in 2013) with no deductions pays the following:

$11,123.75 in Federal income tax for an effective federal tax rate of 18.14%

$4,690.98 in FICA (Social Security and Medicare) for an effective rate of 7.65%

$3,177 in state income taxes, for an effective tax rate of 5.18%

Sales tax in California is 7.5% As Americans only spend about 32% of their income on taxable goods (that's the number I could find), the effective rate would be %2.39

As for property tax, per Prop 13, it is limited to 1% of assessed value at the time of sale with limits on growth of 2% per year. Your theoretical 10K tax bill would be mean the property is assessed at $1,000,000; hardly realistic for someone in the middle class. A more typical home for someone in that range would be $100K-$200K. To help your argument I'll go with the high-end, $200K. That would mean a $2,000 property tax bill, or 3.2% effective rate

Adding all of those up, you get a 36.63% effective tax rate. And that's literally the *worst* tax situation possible.

Throw in things like the child tax credit and mortgage interest deductions and those federal and state effective rates start dropping like a rock.
